  • First Visit Based On early reviews and Photos. Thanks all Yelpers!!! All in all, the food Great price, Fresh, tasty, Hot, Lots of it (two entry feed four people.) Very Busy at 6;30 pm quoted 1/2 hour for carry out 1hr delivery... We chose to pickup It was ready when promised. Got 2 free egg roll with order The best part was they tasty great crunchy crispy Ordered #327 Sweet and Sour Combo in qty. of appearance, Lots of Chicken, Pork and Shrimp, the S&S sauce was great but disappointed only two pieces of Green Pepper (crispy and flavorful), two pieces of tomato (fresh and very good), 10 small pieces of Pineapple (canned but passable.) Also Shrimp With Lobster sauce. perfectly cooked shrimp, Lobster souce was a little week in seasoning and lobster flavor . I will return to try other dishes and think it is great if your in the area try it.

  • Love the food! Any item we have ordered at this place is delicious. I'd eat there again.

  • I love Canton House... : ) They have great prices and the best Lo Mein Ive had anywhere not to mention Giant portions! It's unique and they even use true Cantonese vegetables to the Americaized version of dishes. If you ask them to leave something out (Ex: I hate mushrooms) they take great care to make sure they do so and are very friendly every time I go there. Its my top choice for "Chinese" since Ive moved here!

  • Great food , great lunch specials, great people. Been going here for years... Cant go wrong with anything on the menu.

  • Fresh and hot every time I order from here. Not over sauced like some places. They don't skimp on the portions and the staff is nice. Overall a good business.

  • We finally ordered some food for delivery the other night and were happy with our choice! We've been missing out the last few years. The delivery guy came on time and was a friendly fellow. The food was still hot and tasting very good. We got two entrees and it was more than enough to share for four friends and priced well.

  • I came here based on all of your reviews and am so disappointed. I do agree that the staff is friendly, but the food was so gross that I couldn't believe any of you gave this place 5 stars. My boyfriend got orange chicken with the side of rice and wontons. I got the veggie chow mein with a side of spring rolls and the 2 free egg rolls. When we first got the food the bag was so heavy and we were so exited to eat, but as soon as we tasted it we could barely eat even a quarter of what we got. Everything had a freezer burn taste and the veggie spring rolls had a weird smell to them. My boyfriend said that it was the worst orange chicken he ever had. He was starving before we got our food, poor guy only had a couple pieces of orange chicken half a bite of a wonton and threw out the rest as did I with my order. I hate to bash on any place but my food was honestly that bad.

  • Great food.. Love the Singapore noodles.. The Service is really good..They give out large portions and the price is reasonable..

  • This place has been here for over 15+ years and their food is always great. The owners are friendly and the service is fast, unless there is traffic when you order delivery. They give out large portions, like the containers are packed. The price is reasonable, not over priced and not cheap where you might question the quality of the food. The prices have raised in the years that I've visited but that's expected. I've missed this place so much since I've moved. Nothing tastes as good as their soups and fried rice.

  • Take out or delivery, no dine in at this place. Food is good, service is quick which is all I really expect here. Like most suburbian places, this is Americanized Chinese food, but for what it is, it tastes good. Give it a try..........

  • Good and Nice people. Food is pretty good too. Large portions. Pretty cheap

  • Love Canton House! I miss it since we moved out of Arlington Heights. The General Tao chicken (no broccoli in mine!) and potstickers were my personal favorites. It got to be that I called so often, that the guy knew my voice. I'd tell him what I wanted and he'd recite my address!! I have tried other dishes there and they were all very good.

  • Really good food. The place is a hole in the wall but the quality of the ingredients they use is top notch. Highly recommend their BBQ pork, egg rolls, fried rice, General Tso Chicken. You get a lot of food for a cheap price.

  • Nothing special about this place as there was like no vegetable with my chicken dish. The place was getting a ton of carry outs so its popularity in the area must have been well earned. if your from outside the area though no reason to try this place unless you are on a similar quest like myself trying to sample every last nook and kitchen of Chinese food in Chicagoland.

  • I've loved everything I've ever gotten here. I'm so happy I found this place. I love getting good quality food at a reasonable price....good portions+good prices+good food+ good customer service= great value

  • Awesome Chinese food, which is only natural with such a nondescript place that isn't much to look at inside. Just a table or two and bench chairs. This place is made for takeout, and you won't be disappointed. The portions are huge, the food is good, as well as inexpensive. Very large menu. Staff was very friendly and as a "walk-in", I waited 5 minutes, if that, for my food. If you want good, cheap Chinese food, check this place out!!

  • I used to live right next to plaza of Canton House. I LOVEEEE THEIR HOUSE FRIED RICE. That stuff is to die for and they always pack so much in there!! I love their food, services and price!!! I wish I still lived closer to them but I moved =(. I def need to make a stop and get some food from them!!!

  • Fast delivery and really good food.Lunch and dinner specials.Everything is homemade daily .

  • I plan to expand my review after a few more visits. In fact, I have always wanted to go through a Chinese restaurant menu and order everything, at least once. Although, I have never found the right place to attempt such a task. I think Canton House is the place. However, a more realistic goal will be to tackle the Lunch Special Menu. So far I have had the sweet and sour chicken, and the orange chicken. Both with fried rice and egg roll. The portions are HUGE!!! I think you get about 15 to 20 decent sized pieces of chicken with a heaping amount of pork fried rice. I am in love with the food here because it tastes like old-school Chinese food I'm familiar with from the 1980's and 1990's. Egg rolls are crunchy and delicious. I could eat 50 of them. Well, maybe 4 of them. Currently,out of the Lunch Specials: #1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 I have completed #5 and #18. Next on the list will probably #16, Liu's Special Lo Mein. I'll find out what make's Liu's lo mein so special. Stayed tuned for updates on my quest. I will order and eat at least once a week as to complete this project within 4 months from now. August 6, 2014 to December 6, 2014.

Chinese Cuisine

The popularity of Chinese food in America can be adjudicated by the appearance of China Town in many major cities in the United State of America. The popular trend of ordering or opting for Chinese take away food isn't unknown in America. Chinese take away food comes to rescue when you're too tired from work or too exhausted to cook. No one can resist the temptation of eating spicy noodles, shrimp, chicken, beef or pork cooked in the sweet and spicy sauce. The cooking method of authentic Chinese food is a lot different compared to what is served in America.

Generally, Chinese use dark meat small bones and organs to cook dishes but this changes when you are eating American-Chinese fusion food prepared using white boneless meat cooked with broccoli, carrots and onions. Back in China, the food is less spicy and oily as they favor steaming and braising method for cooking the most popular dishes. So, if you have a taste for authentic Chinese food, then try finding a real Chinese restaurant in the city. You can also try the most popular fusion Chinese food like Pecking Duck, Chicken Feet, Hot Pot, Shrimp Dumpling Soup, Mapo Tofu, Wontons, Chop Suey, Egg Rolls and not to forget Fortune Cookies.

There are not many restaurants in America serving authentic Chinese food. A little research on Restaurant Listings directory can help you locate the best Chinese restaurants in the city. Chinese cuisine is continuously evolving, and you can find a variety of dishes categorized as the food for lactose intolerant, gluten intolerant, vegan, vegetarian, and diabetic friendly. So, if you have a group of friends with different taste patterns, save the hassle and visit the nearest Chinese restaurant in your city.
